Nortech Systems (Nortech) provided engineering services, with respect to fire and life safety, for the alteration and expansion of a one-story restaurant. The building will be modified to include a brewery. Along with typical life safety concerns, Nortech worked with the client to understand site specific operations to mitigate the hazards of milling and commercial cooking.

The existing building will be altered to comply with applicable portions of the New Hampshire State Building Code (RSA 155-A). Specifically, the International Existing Building Code (IEBC-2009). The building will also be modified to comply with the New Hampshire State Fire Code (Saf-C 6000). Including, but not limited to, the Fire Code (NFPA 1-2009) and the Life Safety Code (NFPA 101-2015).
